ok place

Posted Nov 12, 2014
Cons: food, lobby music, amenities
the Bahia bavaro is an ok hotel/resort.. their food choices could be upgraded at breakfast and nightly buffets. they like to serve hamburgers and hotdogs ALOT!!! their lobby entertainment could be varied. only 1 night had american music.. the other 6 were all Dominican... got a little boring by the 4th day... shows were ok.. there was a fee for internet and safety deposit boxes...this is usually included everywhere else I have been. they also don't have ice machines due to lack of potable water so if you want ice at night for the warm drinks in your room, you have to call someone to bring it to you...usually takes an hour or more...I personally feel that the Bahia is a lower class than let's say the palladium resorts...same money, less amenities.... also there was a charge for the spa..(to just use the steam room)...all these things are included in other resorts, and having said that,i won't go back ....I feel you can get a lot more for your money at another hotel chain.

Fourth stay at this same resort. As always, the staff is extremely friendly and always looking out to make your stay more welcoming and comforting. The new kids water park area is great - keeps the kids well entertained and allows more enjoyment in the other pools by adults w/o kids.

Enjoyed our stay at Bahia Principe Bavaro

Posted Nov 2, 2014
Pros: The cleanliness
The Bahia Principe Bavaro is one of 5 other areas each with each own lobby. The grounds are huge and nice to look at and walk around. There is a trolley to take to the beach that runs all day long, walking to the beach is about 10 minutes. The rooms are spacious and clean with a coffee maker and a mini fridge in the room. The al cart restaurants are good depending on your taste, we went to the barbecue restaurant, the seafood, the Japanese and the steak house. Overall the Bahia Principe Bavaro is a nice resort with a staff working hard to please their guests.

Excellent.

Pros: It was a great hotel, clean, no complains what's so ever.
Cons: It's a good walk from the rooms to the beach. But there's always transportation going back and forth. I did not feel that was a problem.
Location: My vacations are to relax, I have taken the trip to Saona Island, to the Capital Santo Domingo, there's lot's of things to do,
We stay at the Grand Bahia Bavaro from 10/18/14 thru 10/26/14. we could not ask for better weather, great resort, great food, friendly waiters,cleaning people.The whole experience was awesome. I been to the Dominican Republic 22 times in the past 10 years, and I have to say this stay was great.

Nice hotel with great staff

My husband and I had a great time will definitely visit again. The staff was very friendly and attentive to your every need and the food was plentiful. My only fault was not a good night life if you want to party but the entertainment (shows) were good.

When we get into the lobby part of my family was in diferent side of the hotel and we couldn't use the same restaurant and facility, we just get acces to do reservations in one restaurant on three nights, doors locks don't work properly, Saturday morning we was waiting for towels more than one hour on the main pool towel station by the beach.
